Project Karma’s Strategy
- Target areas of South East Asia where child exploitation is prolific.
- Establish and train investigation teams to work with local police to catch and prosecute offenders.
- Assist the provision of safe house facilities, counselling, medical care, legal advocacy and other services to child victims and their families.
- Partner with police, governments, their networks and other NGO's.
Through this model, we train and mentor local investigator teams, empowering them to become self-funding, self-sustaining and self-directed over a four-year period. This frees us to continually bring our policing and operational expertise to a new group of trainees and leaders operating in a new area every year.
In 2015 we launch in Cebu, Philippines, with expansion into Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand and India.
Whilst Project Karma’s model will bring long-term change to the crisis of child sexual exploitation it also brings immediate results. Every $1000 saves one child’s life. It takes a child from a mattress in a brothel into appropriate rehabilitation and back to school.
